Further course of proceedings 

If the examining division gives its consent under Rule 137(3) to these amendments and/or the correction and considers them allowable without issuing a further communication under Art. 94(3), it issues a second communication under Rule 71(3) based on the amended/corrected text (see C‑V, 4.6), after which it then proceeds to the grant of the patent pursuant to Art. 97(1).

Where amendments or corrections are not admitted, or where they are admitted but not considered allowable, examination will be resumed (see C‑V, 4.7).
